KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The 2018 Academy Awards will be exciting, not only because it's a tight race and likely no film will sweep, but also because a proud Kansas City native could be the one to walk up onstage and take the Oscar for Best Picture.
Peter Spears grew up in Overland Park and graduated from Shawnee Mission South in 1984. He loved films from a young age and loved theater.
Years later, he also fell in love with the book "Call Me By Your Name.”
That book recently turned into the Academy Award-nominated movie that Spears produced.
